Check out this article just released by NOAA Fisheries on the importance of bioacoustics research. From marine mammals to invertebrates and fish, ocean noise poses a threat to the many animals that rely on sound to survive. New advances in technology are allowing scientists to make great strides in bioacoustics research, and we are learning more and more about the hearing sensitivity of different species through improved sensors and digital recorders. The article was published on the NOAA Fisheries website. Ocean Noise: Can You Hear Me Now?
Successful implementation of NOAA's Ocean Noise Roadmap will ensure the future support of this work, and better conservation strategies for marine species.
